Here's a WJON FlashBriefing for July 6, 2017.

 

 

SIRENS TEST -- If you hear warning sirens in St. Cloud Friday, don't be alarmed. That's the city, testing the sirens after finishing maintenance repairs on nine of them.

 

CONVENIENCE STORE VIOLATIONS -- The St. Augusta Mini-Serv will have to go through another round of ID compliance training or face a fine after another failed check. The St. Augusta City Council fined the store $500 -- which can be waived if all store employees go through more training. It was the store's fourth violation in a 2-year-period.

 

CONVENIENCE STORE DEMOLISHED -- The now-closed Holiday gas station on East St. Germain is coming down. Demolition crews, tearing the building down. For now, still no plans for redevelopment of that block. Stay tuned.

 

HEALTH CARE PROTEST -- A rally in St. Cloud Wednesday, asking state leaders to pass their message to Congress: don't end the Affordable Care Act. Several local people shared how the ACA has affected them.

 

KAYAKER SAVED -- A kayaker capsizes, gets back in his kayak, but passes out. Another kayaker on the scene helps by securing a rescue line to the man's kayak while rescue crews pull him to shore. Happened Sunday on the Sauk River near Heim's Mill.

 

HOCKEY DAY -- Match-ups for Hockey Day Minnesota in St. Cloud, announced last night at Summertime by George. On the schedule -- high school and college games played outdoors on January 19th and 20th. The Huskies play MSU-Mankato at the National Hockey Center. And the Wild host Tampa Bay at Xcel Center.
